staff blogs

distributed.net staff keep (relatively) up-to-date logs of their activities in .plan files. These were traditionally available via finger, but we've put them on the web for easier consumption.

A word or two on the status of ogr-verification. As you know, We’re
having to restore from backups as of February. Unfortunately, when that
backup was taken, there was a problem and the ogr-ver data was not up to
date. The end result is that we have several months of logs to go
though to catch up.

I haven’t been able to do many test runs without something else running
on the box, but it looks like it’s going to be quite a bit faster than
the old box. It’s taking around 2-2.5 hours to process a day now, which
is already an improvement and stats are still catching up, so we’re
competing for I/O.
